Tick establishes the traditional context of war in mythology and religion. Then he describes in depth Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in terms of identity issues. Drawing on world spiritual traditions, he presents ways to nurture a positive identity based in compassion and forgiveness. War and the Soul will change the way we think about war, for veterans and for all those who love and want to help them. It shows how to make the wounded soul whole again. When this work is achieved, PTSD vanishes and the veteran can truly return home.
